A dove flies over the mountains by each ocean, sea and land
Transferring the love through humans heart,
To join together hand by hand,
For a world of love peace and freedom in each land,
To raise a voice, transfer a message and reach a sound,
To live in a world where there are no more wars.
No more pain, no more killing, Bloodshed or hatred!
A world for everybody to live in
At the same earth, to lie under the same sun, same moon and stars

-Sahir Noah

Salam started painting while living in Greece and waiting for his family’s asylum case to be processed.

“I just started without taking classes or anything just on my own. I wanted to paint to deliver a message through my paintings, to tell everyone what it is like to live a refugee life, how we feel, and how hard it is to fight for a better and safer life. I want everyone to know about our situation.

I also play three instruments; Saz, Oud, and Guitar, and play music everyday, as a way to express my feelings and frustrations. It’s just a way for us to express ourselves, to have our voices heard, and to show that we refugees, paint, play music, we are just like you, in the end, we are all just human beings.”

Salam is from Iraq, but had to leave in 2016 with his family because they are Yazidi, which is an ethnic minority.  They first travelled to Turkey where they stayed for about one month, trying to cross the Bulgarian border but after trying six times the family was suffering and tired, and they decided to find another way; to try crossing the sea by boat to Greece. They spent one month trying to cross, during which they suffered physically and mentally. After trying three times, they finally made it and reached Lesvos Island on the 6th of March 2016.

His father and mother, with seven of his brothers and sisters, were relocated to France on the 20th of September 2016. Six months later Salam, his brother and his brothers family were also relocated to France, where Salam is now married and lives in Forbach.
